Texas Tech star running back SaRodorick Thompson was arrested on Monday afternoon with a warrant issued for his arrest for street racing. The Irving, TX native is listed as the #1 RB on the depth chart for the Red Raiders. Thompson had 118 rushing yds and two TD’s against Houston Baptist in the season opener.
If Thompson misses time, Tech will look at true freshman Tahj Brooks, RS Sophomore Xavier White and Alabama transfer Chadarius Townsend to pick up the slack in his absence.
The Red Raiders are set to play the #8 Texas Longhorns this Saturday at 2:30 p.m. at Jones AT&T Stadium.
UPDATE: Per Texas Tech Athletics, Thompson is expected to play against Texas on Saturday, September 26th.
